SCROLL TO CONTINUE WITH CONTENT

Anime has long given its protagonists and antagonists the power to evolve in incredible ways. One genre that showcases this transformation quite brilliantly is shounen. In fighting-focused series like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto, where heroes are on a relentless quest to unleash their ultimate abilities and take their adversaries down, there comes a point where they access a new unprecedented form. This is true in other genres of anime as well, like dark fantasy.

Reaching a ‘final form’ holds special significance in any anime. It represents the culmination of a character’s personal journey and might. Unlocking a mysterious power not only changes their appearance but also amplifies their power. The evolution itself is so climatic that it inspires awe, even when it comes from a threatening antagonist.

With rich animated worlds and an endless spectrum of possibilities, anime has given us genuinely stunning final form reveals. And while each transformation ranks among the most impressive displays of power witnessed in the medium, we have tried narrowing a glorious history to the 20 strongest of all time. From reality warpers to energy absorbers, here are the most formidable final forms in anime history.

20 Senketsu Kisaragi – Kill La Kill

The anime Kill La Kill is set in a high school called Honnōji Academy, which is controlled with an iron fist by its leader Satsuki Kiryuuin and her underlings. When transfer student Ryuuko Matoi arrives at campus seeking answers about her father’s death, she clashes with Satsuki. But after bonding with Senketsu, a sentient kamui that awakens after coming in contact with her blood, Ryuuko’s strength is amplified.

Senketsu Kisaragi Is the Ultimate Killing Machine

Senketsu Kisaragi represents the pinnacle of evolution, one designed to sync with combat and transform its wearer into the ultimate killing machine. Crafted from ultra-durable Life Fibers, it grants Kyuuko powers that take her already formidable power to godly heights. It propels Ryuuko into space, protects her from being stabbed, and magnifies her physical strength tremendously. When triggered, the metamorphosis is a marvel of animation. Stream Kill la Kill on Hulu.

19 Final Getsuga Tensho – Bleach

Bleach centers around Ichigo Kurosaki, an ordinary guy with the ability to see ghosts. After an evil lost soul attacks his family, Ichigo is granted shinigami powers from Rukia Kuchiki. He becomes a substitute soul reaper with immense ability, working as the protector of his town and battling Hollows, or evil spirits, as they come. Throughout the series, Ichigo has attained several forms, including his Hollow form and his Fullbring form.

Final Getsuga Tensho Is Only Temporary

While manga fans consider the True Bankai form to be his strongest, anime fans are always in a state of awe after watching Ichigo’s Final Getsuga Tensho, which transforms both the blade and its wielder. Ichigo’s hair turns black and grows to his waist, with a black cloak adorning his lower body as his aura intensifies. He gains an omnipresent mind and the power of a deep black Reiatsu in his hand. With this form, Ichigo can even take down a Hogyoku-fused Aizen. However, it is called ‘Final,’ because after it diminishes, Ichigo loses consciousness for about a month. When he wakes up, his Shinigami powers are gone. Stream Bleach on Hulu.

18 Demon King Tanjiro – Demon Slayer

One of the most exhilarating shounen anime, Demon Slayer, follows Tanjiro Kamado, who witnesses his family being slaughtered by demons and his sister Nezuko turning into one herself. He becomes a demon slayer to avenge their death and help find a cure for his sister’s condition. He trains endlessly to master his techniques and take on the most dangerous demons.

Demon King Tanjiro Combines Several Different Powers

At one point in the anime, Tanjiro taps into his hidden potential, entering a state where he’s combined the powers of the greatest Demon Slayers to achieve perfect balance. He masters all breathing styles, gains regenerating abilities and exists spectacularly. Demon King Tanjiro defeats one of the most powerful demons in the series, Kibustuji Muzan, but not before inheriting his evil powers himself. However, the final form makes Tanjiro the strongest Demon ever, because he is immune to sunlight — a typical demon’s biggest weakness. Stream Demon Slayer on Crunchyroll.

In order to achieve this form, Griffith sacrifices a majority of his colleagues during an event called the Eclipse.

One Step Above an Omnimon

Digimon Adventure Tri is all about leveling up in battles and reaching a pinnacle of strength.

The Strongest of the Pillar Men

As the strongest Pillar Man, Kars’ abilities were limitless. But after drawing power from the Red Stone of Aja, Kars was able to rise beyond mere immortal status.
